I love steak n shake!

It's not my favorite by a long shot, but I was very basic over the weekend and went to Applebee's.

As far as chain places go, like Applebee's, I would rank them like this:
1. TGI Fridays
2. Chili's
3. Applebee's.

No Fridays near us. But I do like it

Chili's is my favorite
Red Robbin is also good

We don't have Fridays either actually.
I think Ruby Tuesday's is the fanciest? And then Red Robin, but does RR only do burgers?

The year or so that we went to TGIFridays 1-2 times per week for trivia ruined their food for me.

I don't think I've ever been to a Ruby Tuesdays or Red Robin.

Could Buffalo Wild Wings be grouped into this segment of sit down chains? If so, I'd put that at the top.

Probably went to a sit down chain 5-10 times only last year. Food quality is so awful and can get a much better meal at a more local establishment

Fast food is the only chains I more regularly visit

If we just go fast casual as the category BWW is the best.

Everyone understands TGI Fridays, chili, and Applebee's aren't my tip 3, right? I was just ranking those 3 between the bunch

What are BWW deals now? They got rid of bone in Tuesday, but I swear we went on a Tuesday recently and it was BOGO boneless. I think Thursday is still discounted boneless

Yeah I think Tuesdays end up being cheaper. The BOGO thing started last year sometime. No deals for traditional wing folks anymore.

I thought I liked Fazolis, in college I loved it even. Just had some horrible chicken pasta and bland pizza. Bread sticks were okay. I won't be returning for a long time.
